Game of Thrones shot longest battle in show history, report says

Irene MckinneyApr 10, 2018

A now-deleted Instagram post was shared by assistant director Jonathan Quinlan of a thank you note from producers to all the crew and cast members. Holy Jesus! This will have been the largest battle filmed in Thrones history, in fact, taking nearly double the length of time granted to season 6's "Battle Of The Bastards" and season 7's "Goldroad" ambush, which both ate up just under a month of camera time when all was done and dusted. That standout piece of television took 25 days to film, so can you imagine what we'll be getting with a shoot that lasted nearly 2 months? 55 consecutive nights. 11 weeks. The grueling shoot was shot consecutively for nearly two months, and it is the longest shoot in Game Of Thrones history.

The note read as, "This is for the Night Dragons".

It's a note thanking the "Producer Types" for season 8 of the show, notably for "enduring 55 straight nights" and for putting up with all sorts of things in the shoot, including all the snow and mud, the windy rain and the "sheep shit" in the locations of the shoot.

They braved the wild weather and we know all their hard work is going to pay off!

Instead of releasing a new season this April, "Game of Thrones" is filming epic battle scenes for the final season of the show, set to come out next year. They'll just understand they're watching something that's never been done before.

Two of the three locations referred to in the message are Moneyglass and Magheramorne, two locations in Northern Ireland frequently used in the series.

I just hope that the production is able to keep the characters at the center of the fight this time.

If you thought Game of Thrones battle scenes were big before, wait until you get a load of what's coming in season 8. "You'll never again see anything like it", Quinlan had captioned.
